This Historic Seattle Church’s Conversion to Luxury Condos

This former Seattle church is now one of the hottest real estate listings in town. The Sanctuary, designed by Sechrist Design Associates Inc, boasts 12 luxury residences in this historic building.

Formerly first Church of Christ, Scientist, the congregation sold the historic building to a luxury real estate developer for $1.1 million in 2006. Many old churches in the Seattle area have been torn down to make way for new construction, but the developers always intended to keep this historic structure intact as a part of Seattle history.

Contemporary architectural details, like polished concrete floors and stainless steel appliances, are thoughtfully and respectfully integrated into the century-old building. The unique history of the building grants each home strikingly high vaulted ceilings and exposed brick walls.

It is also visible in smaller details: many units contain original stained glass windows or pieces from the original church. An oculus casts sunlight into a communal space built in the former sanctuary.

While the condominiums were listed in 2012, the building is once again making headlines as one of the units is back on the market. It is easily one of Seattle’s most unique home listings.
